This iPhone ‘Theatre Mode’ Update Sounds Like a Threat

It’s hard to pass judgment on iPhone’s new “theatre mode” because, well, it doesn’t exist out in the real world just yet. But according to a new report, that might be changing sooner rather than later, as Apple’s latest update is said to include this mysterious function. What is it, exactly? What does it do? Is this good news or bad news? Is the sanctity of the theatrical experience facing a new, insidious threat? Whatever it is, we’ll probably find out on January 10, when the iOS 10.3 beta rolls out to iPhone users.

Kevin Costner Wants to Cinch His Saddle Up on a 10-Hour Western

Kevin Costner currently shares the screen with Taraji P. Henson, Octavia Spencer and Janelle Monae in the new release Hidden Figures, but the frequent actor hasn’t gotten behind the camera in some time. He took the Oscars by storm as the helmer behind Dances with Wolves in 1990, followed that up with the bizarro The Postman in 1997, and returned in 2003 with the Western Open Range. But for the past 13 years, it’s been all radio silence from Costner as to when audiences can expect another go at directing. As he’s hit the interview circuit to promote Hidden Figures, however, the actor has floated an idea for a grand project on a scale unlike anything he’s attempted before.

These Matthew McConaughey Facts Are Better Than All Right

You know that Matthew McConaughey’s big breakthrough as an actor was as Wooderson in Richard Linklater’s Dazed and Confused. But did you know Wooderson was originally intended as a very small part? After Linklater cast McConaughey in the role (after he grew a mustache and longer hair to prove he wasn’t too handsome for the part), and the actor repeatedly impressed the director with his improvisations and comedy, he beefed up Wooderson’s screen time considerably. That’s just one of the facts featured in the newest episode of You Think You Know Movies!

Tom Cruise Is Only Mostly Dead in the First Trailer for ‘The Mummy’

Every year, when the bottom drops out of the summer movie season and audiences decide to stay home and watch television instead, some well-meaning critic will publish an article asking if cinema is dead. And every year, I pose the same question in response: “Is Tom Cruise still an action star?” As long as Tom Cruise is running across multiplex screens — fighting rogue nations, government consiparcies, and even the occasional mummy — there is still hope for cinema. Then, when Cruise’s career is done and Hollywood is in ashes, then, cinema, you have my permission to die.
